Management career[edit]

Hey began his management career in Germany with VfR Neumünster before moving to Africa to manage Lesotho.[3] Hey was also manager of Gambia from September 2006[3] until March 2007.[4] His spell with Gambia was marred by concerns over money.[5][6] He was appointed manager of Liberia in February 2008.[7] In February 2009, he was appointed coach of the Kenyan national team.[8][9] After disputes with the governing body over team selection,[10] Hey walked out on Kenya's national team shortly before the final World Cup qualifier against Nigeria.[11][12]

His father, Jonny Hey, was from 1972 to 1980 also a professional footballer (MSV Duisburg, Arminia Bielefeld, Grasshoppers Zürich and Fortuna Köln). He played 32 Bundesliga and 127 Second Division games.[13]
